FORT WORTH, Texas, May 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Galderma Laboratories, L.P., maker of Excipial, has teamed up with the American Culinary Federation (ACF), the nation's premier organization for professional chefs and cooks, to share with chefs a new solution for treating dry hands.
Professional chefs spend about 14 hours a day in the kitchen. A lot of this time is spent prepping food and washing their hands, leading to irritated, cracked skin. The Excipial two-step Protect and Repair regimen intensively moisturizes to repair dry skin and soothe itchy, cracked skin.
- Step 1 is Excipial Daily Protection Hand Cream which is uniquely formulated with ingredients that function like a glove for the hands. A barrier is created that hydrates your hands protecting it against excessive hand washing, drying sanitizers or harsh elements that you come in contact with throughout the day.
- Step 2 is the Rapid Repair Hand Cream, which can be used at the end of the day, to hydrate to repair dry skin, alleviate itchiness and provide relief while you rest.
"As chefs, our hands are our talent, and repeated handwashing – necessary in our industry – takes a toll," said Thomas J. Macrina CEC, CCA, AAC, President, American Culinary Federation. "It's terrific that Galderma had the forethought to not only recognize the need to provide relief with the Excipial Protect and Repair regimen, but also to develop a solution that ensures chefs can continue to work with food without interruption after applying the cream."
As part of this partnership, Excipial is the Hand Cream Sponsor of ChefConnect Atlanta and ChefConnect Hawaii as well as an exhibitor at Cook.Craft.Create. Convention and Show. These events provide chefs with the latest information on culinary innovations, networking opportunities for building strategic businesses partnerships, educational seminars and demos, trade shows and social functions.
"We are thrilled to share this new hand regimen with thousands of chefs from all over the country, and the feedback we have received so far is overwhelmingly positive," said Roberto Nakahara, Franchise Director of the Self-medication Business Unit of Galderma Laboratories, L.P. "We are confident that Protect and Repair's improvement of chefs' hard working hands means it can provide significant benefits to others who endure similar skin challenges."
